happy monday! this weekend i stayed in chicago (no vegas trip wah-wah) but it turned out to be a fantastic weekend!
-friday night h and i went to see the joffrey ballet perform othello... it was beeeautiful and my favorite ballet of the season. the costumes, set changes and dancers were amazing and it was refreshing to see one story as opposed to a mixed repertory.
-on saturday i went shopping while h studied. i splurged on a gorgeous linen baseball sweater and olive jacket from jcrew, hello spring wishlist!
-later that day, we walked to navy pier and played tourist. h has wanted to ride the huge ferris wheel for years, so we finally decided to make it happen. the view from the top was beautiful and if you squint enough lake michigan looks like the ocean ;) after our ride we went on the swings! i love swinging but i didn't expect to have so much fun on the ride -- we were both all smiles the rest of the day.
-on sunday we met the family for brunch at branch 27 (a super cute place in our hood). i was thrilled to be able to ride my bike to the restaurant.
